While hard work is most definitely the name of the game when building a world class data centre facility (especially whilst also keeping a large base of existing rack footprints running smoothly), it is safe to say that a break from time to time is welcomed. The entire build team enjoyed a private day of racing at the local Team Sport karting centre this week, which proved to be an incredibly fun afternoon away from the facility.
